SINGAPORE – 2022 — Bridgewater Associates, a global leader in institutional portfolio management, today announced that it has opened an office in Singapore.

Highlighting the importance of the pan-Asia market, Bridgewater’s new office is both symbolic of its deep commitment to the region and a natural progression of the firm’s long-standing partnership with clients in the area.

“The world has increased in complexity and, in turn, so have the challenges our clients are facing,” says Kyle Delaney, President and Chief Commercial Officer of Bridgewater.

“Our Singapore office has been many years in the making and allows us not only seek to provide best-in-class partnership to our clients in the region, but also to our global client base that will benefit from our deep understanding of this important market as a result of our presence here.”

The new office will be overseen by Chip Packard, Head of Client Service for Eurasia, and Margaret Wang, Head of Bridgewater Associates (Singapore), who will manage the buildout and on-ground operations.

The team will include a combination of experienced local hires and long-tenured employees from the firm’s U.S. headquarters, including members from its research and client service departments.Packard adds, “Our exceptional team will enable us to bring the best of Bridgewater to the region while immersing ourselves more deeply in the region.

“This permanent presence will further strengthen our client relationships while also allowing us to explore new opportunities in a growing market.”

Building on relationships that span nearly 30 years in the Asia-Pacific area, Bridgewater’s Singapore office is the firm’s latest geographic expansion in the region, which initially began with the opening of its Beijing office in 2011, followed by establishing operations in 2016 for Bridgewater (China) Investment Management in Shanghai.
